Good morning crafters and blogging friends!
I've spent all morning making this card to enter into the Shabby Tea Room challenge Get Creative - you know how it is when you have an idea in your head - you try it out - it doesn't work so you play around a bit more and end up with something completely different from which you originally wanted! Yep that happened this morning more or less - the background has come out as I wanted it to but first thing this morning it was pink stamped on white! Today TSTR is hosted by Clare and she wants you to create a card without using any patterned papers and to create your own handmade emblishments! A great challenge Clare and its certainly kept me busy (well who wants to do ironing anyway...... LOL)
So here is my entry for the The Shabby Tea Room # 47 challenge:-
Stamped background swirls and the sentiment and frame using clear pigment ink and heat embossed with silver pearl embossing powder. My flower is handmade see my earlier post here. I pressed my flower into the clear pigment ink pad and then sprinkled over the silver pearl embossing powder and embossed it. I also distressed the edge of the flower, the outside edge of the card and the matted sentiment with white acrylic paint applied with finger! The matt for the sentiment has been punched with a MS border punch to add a pretty detail. I then finished off the card with some seam binding under the flower and small white pearls.
Hope you like today's efforts I'm off to make a coffee and have a biscuit (naughty!) - but sometimes you just have to!
Thanks for stopping by.
Countdown to Christmas...
